a lot of artist have said that before lol watch him submit his next album anywayFebruary 10, 2021 at 9:06 am #1204035303
Save Your Tears and Blinding Lights were ok, the rest were not. The lackluster vocals and vanilla performance were not complemented. If you happen to be a basic pop artist, then put up a flamboyant show like Katy.February 10, 2021 at 9:10 am #1204035320This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 10, 2021 at 9:19 am #1204035339
Besides vocals, taylor is phenomenal is each and every aspect of a performance. Even her vocals is great currently, see long pond studio sessions.
Swift has indeed improved but it is worth noting that studios are designed to facilitate clean vocals. Live vocals mix up with crowd noise, echoes, mic movement sounds and other acoustic disturbances. It creates noisy signals that are quite challenging for electronic systems to process.February 10, 2021 at 9:29 am #1204035369
I do not want to speak for the Abel or the Grammys, but the Grammys blind siding him for Justin Bieber is literally atrocious. Abel definitely deserves to be petty. Abel is doing well, but I think he’s Grammy chances now are completely over in the future. Everyone knows the Grammys have screwed up, and Abel handling of that situation does not put them in their favor.

Rihanna lost 8 Grammy nods in 1 night and came back the following year as a winner.
Kendrick lost every award during his debut and eventually became undeniable in the Rap Field each album cycle thereafter.
After Hours being snubbed is obviously egregious, but had The Weeknd played his cards right, voters might’ve made it up to him next time. But his ego got in the way. Oh well.

After having been to so many live shows … I can say without a doubt that there is a marked difference between what you hear on the radio/streaming service or a CD/album or a club or a full on stadium.
And not only the sound but actually being able to command the stage. And the bigger the stage sometimes the artist does not so good. I’ve seen big name artists sound and perform well in a club setting but then be a flop in an actual concert venue.
If an artist can command the stage without a ton of props then that is a better show, at least to me. I came to see the artist not the fluff. There are some that just rely on props too much. Abel relied on the props and honestly they just were not doing it.February 11, 2021 at 6:39 am #1204037069
I don’t know what people expected really. He did fine with what his strengths are. He was ok. Didn’t wow me, though. I think he lacks a bit of charisma on the stage to be honest.
He is not an entertainer like MJ or Bruno Mars. He is a singer who doesn’t dance. He did his best to make the performance interesting not being able to offer an elaborate choreography himself. I can see he really made an effort to offer the best he had to offer.
His songs also aren’t the kind of pop anthems that can get a crowd going. I am not judging his songs as bad. They are songs I actually like but I don’t think they’re the sort of song suitable for an event like this. You want an entertainer with catchy pop stuff or a charismatic rock star with songs everyone knows.
The Weeknd is a superstar, but how I see it he’s still not established like a Beyonce, Justin Timberlake or Lady Gaga etc. Maybe this came too early in his career.
Coldplay, for example, worked fine IMO because they have lots of catchy songs the crowd can sing along to. Chris Martin was also quite energetic and cheerful on the stage and it just looked pretty good, despite him not dancing or doing anything special. They also fit well with Beyonce and Bruno Mars, who are both stellar performers as far as dancing goes.
Maroon 5 I found them bland. Not enough energy and the rapper guy was out of place and didn’t have any chemistry at all with Levine and his stuff didn’t mesh well with Maroon 5 stuff.
I think maybe The Weeknd needed a guest star, and more specifically an entertainer, to accompany him to make up for his lack of dancing etc. I don’t think he is charismatic enough on stage to carry a whole show like this by himself.
Still think he deserved to be nominated at the Grammys for at least his song Blinding Lights. BL is much more memorable than all of the nominations this year for Song Of The Year IMO. Except for DSN. That one is the only other one that stands a chance to not be forgotten already by next year. as far as I’m concerned
